OPI State of the Industry Report 2022-2023
Industry Report 2022-2023 – The year 2022 was a difficult one for the business products (BP) sector. The world was impacted by widespread shortages of raw materials, inflation, and significant currency swings as it began to gradually recover from the COVID pandemic, as well as by the far-reaching repercussions of that conflict in Ukraine.
All of these elements have compelled BP distributors and providers to consider many important issues:
What has been happening with volume demand in 2022, despite the fact that prices have been rising, and what strategies are being implemented to reduce the effects of any declining sales and market volumes?
What effects has the conflict in Ukraine had?
What effect did the Euro and pound’s decline against the US dollar have?
What can resellers do to counteract Amazon’s present market dominance and that of Amazon Business?
All of these important questions require dependable responses from respected sources. The senior executives of major BP firms in Australia, Benelux, Canada, France, Germany, the UK, and the USA were interviewed in-depth and online for “The State Of The BP Industry 2022-2023,” the tenth edition of Martin Wilde Associates’ (MWA) and OPI’s annual research study, to get the answers.
